Cemeteries

Bosque County burials were published by the Bosque County Historical Commission in the two-volume Bosque County Cemetery Records in 1985 (Volume I) and 1987 (Volume II). Subsequent burials were documented by the Cemetery Committee in 2017. The two-volume Bosque County Cemetery Records listed all known cemeteries and all persons buried in these cemeteries at the time of publication. The information included dates from the gravestones and, in some cases, the inscriptions from the gravestones. Although these volumes are now out-of-print, they are available for reference at the Bosque County Collection, and the information contained in these volumes has been converted to an online database searchable by name.

The question often arises as to whether relatives can visit a cemetery on private land. State law grants the public certain rights for visitation during reasonable hours and for purposes associated with cemetery visits, but with conditions.

More About the Historic Texas Cemetery (HTC) Designation

The HTC designation is an official recognition of family and community graveyards and was developed in 1998 to help protect historic cemeteries by recording cemetery boundaries in county deed records to alert present and future owners of land adjacent to the cemetery of its existence. The designation imposes no restrictions on private owners’ use of the land adjacent to the cemetery or the daily operations of the cemetery. A cemetery is eligible for designation if it is at least 50 years old and is deemed worthy of recognition for its historical associations. The very nature of a cemetery being a landmark of a family’s or community’s presence is considered to validate the criteria of historical associations. Any individual, organization, or agency may submit a request for designation.

List of Historic Texas Cemeteries in Bosque County

The Official Historic Texas Cemetery designation can be obtained through an application process with the Texas Historical Commission. Any individual, organization or agency may submit an application. To receive the designation, the applicant must show proof that the cemetery is at least 50 years old and provide precise information on its location. A processing fee of $25 is required. If a cemetery already has a Historical Marker, certain information requirements in the application can be waived. Once processed, the cemetery is recorded in the county deed records as a historic site and is eligible to display the Historic Texas Cemetery medallion. The medallion can be displayed by itself, as an addition to an already existing Historical Marker, or with a new interpretive plaque with text developed from the history. The cost of the medallion and plaques are additional but are not required for a cemetery to be designated as an Official Historic Texas Cemetery. The designation does not restrict in any way the public use or private owner's use of the land adjacent to the cemetery.
